If you’re planning a bathroom remodel anytime soon, you may want to put some thought into what kind of tile pattern you’re springing for. There are so many to choose from. However, not all tile patterns are the ideal look for a bathroom. Which patterns look the best in a bathroom? The plumbing experts of Toronto are here to let you know.
Brick bond tiles have many great placements in bathrooms. We’re sure you know what this pattern looks like. If you know how bricks are laid in a brick building, then you know what brick bond tiles look like.
These rectangular tiles look absolutely stunning as a tile backsplash for a tub. For those of us who have a standalone tub, you know that bathtime is a time for elegance. Lighting candles and sinking into a warm bath is a religious experience. However part of that experience is relishing the beauty of your bathroom design. If you can’t feel good about your environment, you won’t feel good about the experience. Brick bond tiles behind a tub have a sturdy, elegant, and simplistic feel to them. They’re the perfect style for those who want a combination of strong and chic.
Because hexagons fit perfectly together, they make a great pattern for tile. However, hexagon tiles don’t fit aesthetically in just any room of the house. They specifically suit bathrooms. Something about their slightly rounded appearance lends itself to the vibe of a bathroom.
Take advantage of this special tile pattern by using it as a sink backsplash or for the tile floors. If you want to try something unusual, spring for larger hexagons. Small tiles tend to make a room’s interior feel cheaper. That’s because small tiles tend to be less pricey. If you want tiles with a fun sort of energy that still keep your bathroom looking classy, go for some closer to 6” in diameter.
You’ve probably seen herringbone tiles before and didn’t know they had a name! This tile pattern is characterized by long, rectangular tiles that alternate against each other. They make a kind of arrow shape, the end of one resting on the side of another.
The herringbone pattern is fantastic for the walls of a standup shower. This pattern creates a sense of height within the shower that you can’t achieve with linear or brick bond tiles. Plus, it adds a sense of dimension.
Linear tiles are the most basic of tile patterns, but they do fit in bathrooms and, thus, shouldn’t go unmentioned. Linear tiles are the classic square-against-square tiles. This tile pattern can really fit in anywhere. Backsplashes, flooring, shower walls, and any other application you can think of. If you want something simple, but elegant, go for large, linear tiles.
